Established in 2009, Mentors International helps individuals and families throughout Honduras turn generational poverty into sustainable self-reliance. This country has one of the highest populations of people living in extreme poverty in Central America.
According to the World Bank, 4.8 million people in Honduras survive on less than $5.50 a day. The people of Honduras suffer from high unemployment and vastly unequal distribution of wealth. The COVID-19 pandemic is significantly impacting Honduras’s economy. The two devastating hurricanes that hit this country in 2020 also delayed economic recovery efforts.
Fortunately, through mentoring, training, and micro-loans, individuals and families are improving their incomes, paying off their debts, and increasing their savings. They are starting businesses, finding employment, and spreading prosperity throughout their local communities even in these uncertain times.
